14th Cavalry Battalion [also called 1st or 2nd Battalion] was organized early in 1862 with four companies. Many of its members were recruited in the western counties of the state. Serving in the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, the unit fought at Pocotaligo and Coosewhatchie where it lost 2 killed, 13 wounded, and 13 missing. During January, 1863, it merged into the 5th South Carolina Cavalry Regiment. Major Joseph H. Morgan was in command.
